Why is the NFL worried about Tyreek Hill giving the Peace Sign when he scores a TD, to the point where a Referee warned him before last Sunday's game??

    That's ridiculous, I didn't hear anything about it.

    Would they prefer he give a middle finger???

    I think some are considering it taunting. wasnt there an incident against the Patriots a few years ago. didnt he flash it to our secondary, then after a pick or a tackle or something, wasnt it Mccourty that came over and flashed it in tyreeks face?

    at least something like that happened.

    George Brett, Bobby Orr and Terry Bradshaw.

    I did a Google search and apparently it's as @craig44 stated, some kind of taunting. I've watched enough NFL football in my life to know with certainty that much worse is said play-after-play in every game. What do the Refs think players are jawing about, asking each other how the wife and kids are??

    Allen got flagged for pointing and fined $10k. Was it a taunt? Both him and the defender were laughing because he got him on a fake pump. So I guess the peace sign is a taunt if a finger point is.

    Ridiculous, maybe they should start instructing the players to show no emotion and keep their arms down at all times.

    They don't call it the No Fun League for nothing. 😆

    That call and subsequent fine on Allen was totally ridiculous!

    Didn't OBJ get fined for the same thing vs the Browns when he scored on a pass to him?

    Oh yeah - I guess he did - I just looked it up............Now the question is WHY?

    "BALTIMORE -- Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was reportedly fined $10,927 for unsportsmanlike conduct after flashing the peace sign as he made a touchdown in last week's game against the Cleveland Browns."
